The Conference on Taxonomy Building & Management
NOV 6-7, 2017 // JW MARRIOTT // WASHINGTON, DC
Taxonomy Boot Camp 2017

The Leading Conference on Taxonomy Building & Management

When we say taxonomy, we mean power: the power of organizing, the power of creating meaning, the power of dynamic content. Taxonomies are all about creating structures that tap into this vast potential, bringing data and information to life. Taxonomy Boot Camp is all about harnessing the power of taxonomies to generate value for your organization.

Taxonomy Boot Camp program is designed for everyone involved with taxonomies, from those new to the field to seasoned experts (and everyone in between). Beginner sessions cover the nuts and bolts, while  more advanced sessions give experienced practitioners insight into how others have evolved their approaches. Hear case studies, how-to sessions, and practical talks on taxonomy tools and methods, and cutting-edge developments in the field.

Taxonomy Boot Camp is the only conference dedicated to exploring the successes, challenges, methodologies and products for taxonomies. Share your experiences, network with peers, and get incredible insight on taxonomies, ontologies, folksonomies, tagging mechanisms and other techniques for organizing information at this one-of-a-kind event.
